The Science behind RedLily’s Heart:
Ingredient #1 – NSK-SD®
NSK-SD® is the real power plant of RedLily’s Heart formula. It is an incredible discovery that is protected by two patents to ensure you are getting the highest quality product and not one of a number of counterfeit knockoffs. NSK-SD® is manufactured in a world leading, state-of-the-art facility in Japan. There have been numerous studies done on NSK-SD® to ensure both efficacy and safety. Our research partners have helped us find the best ingredients on the market to help support heart health.
The science behind NSK-SD® is both inspiring and cutting edge. For the science junkies out there: NSK-SD® is produced by the Natto bacteria (bacteria from traditional Japanese food called Natto) and one of the serine protease consisting of 275 amino acid residues with a molecular weight of 27,724. NSK-SD® is fermented using a patented fermentation process and using a patented strain of Bacillus subtilis natto. This is all science jargon meaning that NSK-SD is unique in its form and how it is made–and no other companies can duplicate this. It’s truly the best of the best.
This is just the start however. NSK-SD® is the only Nattokinase that has removed the naturally occurring Vitamin K. In fact, they have a patent on that specific procedure. So if you use any knockoff Nattokinase… you’ll be elevating up your vitamin K score and that can be detrimental to improved blood flow. One of the key elements that drew the RedLily team to this specific ingredient was a study done on blood viscosity and flow in human extremities. NSK-SD® was given to four human subjects to see how it would affect red blood cell “clumping” or what the scientific community calls “red blood cell aggregation”. All four subjects reduced RBC aggregation by around 50%. That’s a significant reduction in clumping and a significant increase in your ability to move blood through your body. A second clinical study on two individuals with red blood cell clumping showed a return to normal within one week of treatment with NKS-SD®.
Now here’s the real breakthrough study–where they measured blood flow in the hands of 15 human subjects. The group that took the NKS-SD saw significant increases in blood flow in their hands and fingers. This is exactly what we need to improve to keep blood flowing at an increased rate. Below, you can actually see some visual results from PeriScan PIM II tests. You can see by the significant change in color in the NSK-SD® group that the increase in blood flow is absolutely dramatic. There is a real reduction in resistance of blood flow in the hands and fingers. This means more blood is getting through this restricted area, and flowing back to the heart. And this is exactly why we chose to use pure NSK-SD® as the core of RedLily’s Heart formula and not a generic nattokinase.
In a gold standard clinical study using the same amount of NSK-SD® found in Heart, subjects experienced a significant increase of blood flow volume through their fingers of over 400% vs. a placebo… and these were just average results.
New research on NSK-SD® has illustrated its ability to help lower blood pressure in hypertensive adults. Decreased blood pressure not only has health benefits. When vascular resistance is decreased, it allows more nutrients and oxygen to your muscles, and alleviates stress on the heart. Below is a chart that shows significant reduction of both systolic (when your heard contracts) and diastolic (when your heart is relaxed) blood pressure. This study was performed with the same amount of NSK-SD® that can be found in Heart.
Ingredient #2 – Salix Alba (White Willow S.E. 15% Salicin)
For years now, doctors have been prescribing low doses of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), or what is better known as Aspirin. Low-dose Aspirin is commonly used to thin the blood, helping primarily in treatments against strokes and heart attacks. Of course Aspirin is also used as a pain medication as well. The largest downfall with synthetically produced Aspirin however is the fact that it can increase the risk of hemorrhagic strokes and gastrointestinal bleeding (burst blood vessels and stomach bleeding) which we absolutely want to avoid.
The synthetic form of Aspirin that we so commonly use in today’s society is originated from traditional herbal medicine. Willow Bark and Sparaea have been used for many centuries due to the fact that they contain Salicylic Acid or Salicin as an active ingredient. When you ingest Salicin, your body converts it to salicylic acid, which in turn acts like Aspirin to help thin the blood. White Willow is very well tolerated, showing minimal side effects throughout history. In RedLily’s Heart formula, we are using a precise standardized amount to add to the power of the NKS-SD® in order to keep your blood viscosity down and in turn improve blood flow.
Note: If you are allergic to Aspirin, you will most likely be allergic to the White Willow content found in Heart. Please check with your doctor before using this product.
Ingredient #3 – Zingiber officinale (Ginger Root P.E. 5:1)
For literally centuries, Ginger has been used to treat a number of conditions including nausea, inflammation, poor digestion, and thickening of blood. In both Ayurvedic (Native Indian) and Chinese traditional medicine, Ginger is responsible for half of the prescriptions that are dispensed. Ginger is a natural blood thinner and is noted in traditional medicine to help to prevent strokes, heart attacks, and hardening of the arteries. A chemical found in Ginger called Gingerol appears to inhibit an enzyme that causes cells to clot and thereby reduces platelet aggregation and blood “clumping.” Ginger also helps to slow down the production of cholesterol by the liver and has been known to reverse the increase in triglycerides (fats) and low-density lipoproteins (LDL), thus helping to improve heart and cardiovascular health.
In RedLily’s Heart, we’ve added a very specific amount of 4:1 extracted Ginger–giving you the perfect compliment in the entire Heart formula.
Ingredient #4 – Viburnum opulus (Cramp Bark P.E. 10:1)
Cramp Bark is an ingredient that has been used in the past in a select number of nutritional supplements. The name pretty much says it all: Cramp Bark is an anti cramping herb. Initial research on Cramp Bark shows that this herb was traditionally used by women, however, it is becoming increasingly common for men to use it as well, due to more and more people getting anti-cramping results in their skeletal muscles. It’s a key element in the defense of muscle cramps. Even though the anti-cramping is a real benefit to Cramp Bark, we are also keenly interested in how it helps relax ‘smooth muscle’. This is the kind of muscle that surrounds your veins and arteries. By releasing some of the pressure that the smooth muscle places on your vascular system, physics says that your blood flows more easily. Add this to the fact that your blood is less viscous due to the NKS-SD®, Ginger and White Willow, and you have a winning combination to help enhance your heart health.
Buyers beware! As with all herbs, they can vary dramatically in potency and purity. The RedLily research team has been working with this herb for years now and know the top suppliers in the world. This is important because you only want a specific amount of Cramp Bark at a 10:1 extract in your formula. We only use the best sources available so you’re getting exactly what you need in Heart.
Ingredient #5 – Trans Resveratrol
Resveratrol has been the wonder ingredient; particularly as it applies to cardiovascular health including decreasing the viscosity of the blood, inhibition of platelet aggregation, stimulation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and inhibition of vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. To summarize, studies show the ability for Resveratrol to play a key role in the overall formula of Heart.
Ingredient #6 – Pharmaceutical Grade Niacin (Vitamin B3)
Niacin is one of the 8 B Vitamins and is commonly known as Vitamin B3. It is an essential, water-soluble vitamin (does not get stored in your fat cells) so it needs to be ingested on a regular basis to perform some very key roles in your body. First, it is critical in the processing of carbohydrates. However, what we are really focused on is Niacin’s ability to help dilate blood vessels, which increases blood flow.
People have used high doses of Niacin for years to improve blood flow. A known reaction in some people that take Niacin is flushing of the skin and dilation of small, surface-level blood vessels. For people who take high doses some side effects may include an itchy, tingly niacin flush that lasts a few minutes. In others, there is no effect of this nature. These commonly-known side effects generally are temporary in nature.
Note: Niacin is a moderate-dose support ingredient in RedLily’s Heart formula and for the most part should be well tolerated for the majority of users. If you do not experience the flush be assured it is still working.
Ingredient #7 – Pharmaceutical Grade Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12)
Vitamin B12 is a very important and powerful ingredient in the Heart formula. B12 is a critical factor in the production of red blood cells (RBC). Since red blood cells carry oxygen to muscles and organs, it is very important that the RBCs are working in an optimal capacity. Delivering oxygen efficiently to the working muscles will allow less stress on the cardiovascular system, which will in turn allow blood to flow more easily.
Vitamin B12 helps to create the DNA needed for cell division, especially in cells that are rapidly dividing such as red blood cells in your bone marrow. Without sufficient DNA, the cells could not divide properly and red blood cell production would be slowed and/or abnormal blood cells known as megaloblasts could form (large, ineffective red blood cells that conform to a certain type of anemia).
Vitamin B12 is also essential to the nervous system because it helps the body create a protein known as myelin that covers and protects nerves from damage. Without a strong myelin covering, your nervous system can be vulnerable to damage. Since nerve impulses are the signals that tell your muscles to contract, optimal nerve function becomes an added benefit of the Heart formula.
Ingredient #8 – Pharmaceutical Grade Pyridoxal Phosphate (Vitamin B6)
Vitamin B6, like B12, is a very important aspect of RedLily’s Heart formula. Working in conjunction with Vitamin B12, B6 increases the ability of the body to produce heme and for oxygen to bind with hemoglobin (which attaches oxygen to the RBCs to be delivered to your muscles). Together with Vitamin B12, B6 helps to ensure you are as efficient and effective as possible in delivering oxygen to your muscles. This will in turn lighten the load on your cardiovascular system so that blood keeps moving freely through your body.
Ingredient #9 – Pharmaceutical Grade L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Vitamin C performs many critical functions in your body that are related to health and is a powerful anti-oxidant that absorbs free radicals before they can invoke cellular damage.
Free radicals are a byproduct of physical activity. The more activity you do, the more free radicals you produce. It is also a very important ingredient for your body to produce collagen, which is found in muscle and joints. As a result, it is essential for joint health. Finally, it is needed for normal blood clotting. Vitamin C is a key vitamin, and since it is a water soluble vitamin, it is critical to ingest daily.
So now you know the secrets behind the scientifically-validated Heart formula. The number one benefit is that it will decrease your blood’s viscosity and allow more blood flow through your body with a key clinical focus on your extremities. NSK-SD® is truly the heart and soul of the formula and has extensive research on both safety and efficacy. When you combine this with a precisely balanced group of effective support ingredients in specific ratios, we believe we have created a revolutionary product to help support cardiovascular health. This truly is a one-of-a-kind supplement that cannot be replicated due to its proprietary, patent-protected formula.
